Planning application at 53-63 Dowling Street Launceston TAS 7250

Regarding Toll Dowling St. expansion plans. They currently create an environmental nuisance with noise levels ever increasing and dust pollution that starts most mornings around 5am, sometimes earlier. This noise from reverse beepers revving of large deisel engines and clanging of steel containers can be heard for approx 1 km away, and is ever increasing. Is this the environment we want in the CBD, residential and tourism area of our heritage City. Despite complaints to Toll they have done nothing to adjust operating hours, noise levels and dust pollution. This shows lack of empathy with local community concerns. Rate payers, tourists,schools and hospitals in and around East Launceston should expect our city council support and intervention
